Remember those Mentos commercials from the 90's where someone would pop one and then do something smart? Apparently it doesn't always work.

She needed a getaway car, so she decided to steal an ambulance that was parked around the corner from the gas station.

The only problem was that she didn't know how to work it.

When police arrived, they found her still in the ambulance, trying to figure it out.

Froilan is going to be facing multiple charges, including felony robbery as well as attempted theft.
